Youth leader tip for the week

This bonus is just for the youth leader—a quick tip and illustration to enhance your youth leadership. You may already know this idea, have already learned it through trial and error, or maybe just need a quick reminder. Here it is in a quick infusion.


Good leaders also need to be good followers. You can encourage the participants in your Sabbath School to empower others in the group simply by following them. They can do this in small ways, such as by starting a discussion in a small group, helping set up for Youth Sabbath School, playing background music during Sabbath School, inviting people to attend during the week, or co-leading an icebreaker before the program starts. Expect each person present to participate, and join in with them so that the ideas of leading and following become easily interchangeable. When you follow a person, you make that person a leader because of the way you’re actively following them.

This week’s resources also include two lesson plans and a discussion starter video which offer different ways of looking at the topic. Each lesson plan includes opening activities, scripture passages, discussion questions, and real-life applications.
